Bo District lacks support

The Superintendent of Bo Statutory District in Margibi County, Henry Michael Sphere, is appealing for support to develop the area.

The geographical landscape of Bo Statutory District starts from Division 26th in Firestone thru the Roberts Internal Airport to Charlesville, Marshall, Shefflin and Duazon.      

Speaking to reporters over the weekend on the campus of the Booker Washington Institute in Kakata, Margibi County, Superintendent Sphere said the issue of non-support at all levels of government is an open secret.

However, he vowed to constructively engage the leadership of Margibi, including its Legislative Caucus and the Ministry of Internal Affairs for support to effectively run the district.

According to him, his administration has previously drafted a proposed budget of $1.2 million for development, stressing that 

Bo District needs every support to operate because all components a county requires to run smoothly are in the district.

Superintendent Sphere said funding is seriously required to avoid the district from lingering and called on government to provide funding for the district to function in accordance with its statue. 

According to him, he has been using his private resources along with assistance from some personalities such as Bester Davis, who compensated the clerical staff and had other things happening in the district for the love of the people of Margibi.

He said the $1.2 million needed is not only for operation but development, salaries and other activities to uplift the district.

The superintendent however said despite the challenges, he will continue to advocate because the beginning of everything is usually difficult, including opposition from some people, while others are supportive of his dreams.

He also called on critics and those who find themselves at the helm of power not to stand in the way of development, adding, they should not deny majority of the people what they supposed to get because of their personal perception about a person.
